Many scholars from different religious persuasions have believed that the Antichrist will likely be a unique individual who appears during the end times. The French mystic and Traditionalist thinker, René Guénon also believed that the Antichrist would likely be a specific person.
In The Reign of Quantity and the Signs of the Times, Guénon says the modern world is a realm of pure materialism because of the “Western deviation” from eternal truth. This resulted in the “reign of quantity”. This was not just about economics and politics, it was also a spiritual war.
He wrote of the current age – “the word ‘Satanic’ can indeed be properly applied”.
Guénon, uses the word satanic to represent the negation and reversal of order and denial of traditional truth. He says the spirit of negation is the spirit of lying that is often disguised by the unexpected, in order to avoid being recognized, and in even in order to pass itself off as the very opposite of what it is. The adversary naturally will try to pass himself off as an angel of light.
A counterfiet messiah that promises the people heaven on earth. But it’s a lie in the form of a pseudo traditional restoration and counter initiation.
According to Guénon, the counter-initiation is the expression of the counter-tradition in the social order, which is precisely the reign of the Antichrist. This will be the time we have a reintroduction of quality, but of quality inverted with respect to its normal and legitimate significance.
Guénon says the Antichrist will be a person who will be at the head of the thing as the incarnation of what it will represent. He will establish a new visible counter hierarchy, the summit of which will be occupied by this being. He wil be less an individual than a symbol, a synthesis of all the inversion of tradition that has led upto his time.
We could interpret this event that Guénon describes as the Last Great Illusion to end all illusions for the people. As if the Antichrist will be a natural outgrowth of modern society at the agreed upon End Time, but he is also chosen or annointed to assume his role as the defacto leader of the last act.
Guénon said the Antichrist will also have specific physical traits and deformities showing inwardly that he is the closest to hell – bearing the mark of the devil. He will have neither a predecessor nor successor. (326)
In The Reign of Quantity and the Signs of the Times, Guénon wrote;
“He [the Antichrist] will be an ‘imposter’ (this is the meaning of the word dajjāl by which he is usually designated in Arabic) since his reign will be nothing other than the ‘Great Parody’ in its completest form, the ‘satanic’ imitation and caricature of everything that is truly traditional and spiritual.
His time will certainly no longer be the ‘reign of quantity’, which was itself only the end-point of the ‘anti-tradition’; it will on the contrary be marked, under the pretext of a false ‘spiritual restoration’, by a sort of reintroduction of quality in all things, but of quality inverted with respect to its normal and legitimate signiﬁcance.
After the ‘egalitarianism’ of our times there will again be a visibly established hierarchy, but an inverted hierarchy, indeed a real ‘counter-hierarchy’, the summit of which will be occupied by the being who will in reality be situated nearer than any other being to the very bottom of the ‘pit of hell’.” (pg. 271)
René Guénon wrote in The Reign of Quantity that the rule of the Antichrist marks the end times where the modern world and evil will vanish. But this does not mean it is the end of humanity.
Like a bad dream, it is simply the end of an illusion. Guénon had wrote;
“….the end now under consideration is undeniably of considerably greater importance than many others, for it is the end of a whole Manvantara, and so of the temporal existence of what may rightly be called a humanity, but this, it must be said once more, in no way implies the end of the terrestrial world itself, because, through the “reinstatement” that takes place at the final instant, this end will immediately become the beginning of another Manvantara…..it can be said in all truth that “the end of a humanity” never is and never can be anything but the end of an illusion.
Evil is effaced in the presence of the total order into which it is finally merged, and this seemingly excuses all crimes as mere negativities, as simply limitations, like contingent existence itself.
The evil vanishes completely because it was inreality only an illusion [a mere phantasy, like a bad dream] inherent in separativity.” (335-336)

Everyone are affraid of mortality and like to live in safty. I strongly hold the belif that material world is as important as spiritual. The part of kundalini awakening is that fear of mortality and going through survivals guilth you know the things that people and animals and entities have to do in order to survive in this material world. But however when you express end of humanity fear not to bi so hasty. I belive so many souls are incqrnated on earth in this special time to ascedent to a higher vibrationaly level togerher wirh whole planet into the new golden age.
The force that binds energy into matter is really strong in this ages thats why humans can not do things we used to read about ancient times like merkaba travel or astral travel or teleportation or bi location. So I think when this celectial energies lift vibrational level of our planet we wont be so limited by material world but instead doing all sorts of things like telekinesis and stuff.
And even if your material body complitly dies there is a whole new tranacedental realm to explore.
You know where souls and our astral bodies come from.
Now dont get me wrong. There is nothing bad in enjoying material thinks thats the best part you came for while incarnating on this planet contrary that many religons teach you of deprival of material things. Its good to build and aquare and leave a material mark on earth.
There are many hypotesis about future and I understand people are scared of unknown but I belive we were once before in Golden Age and it was like paradise on earth. But how to get there?We have to balance polarized energies of our bodies and of whole planet.But how to get there?
I ll tell you how. You go having your parties and friends and family life and travels and all the hard work you just leave to me. No problem. When I think I have to do the hardest job on this planet and I dont get pay for it. And on top of it all you wont let me enjoy my life of have any fun but you take everything from me. Thats a gratitute I perszme to the one without whome this very planet would not existed neither you on it. Nither NASA s cute plains.
Really! What else do I have to suffet from yall?! Mater Materia Matrix
Frankly at first I was really affraid of developing tehnology and transhumanisam but then I have accepted it as variety of life in the universe esp after reading Frank Herberts book.
Eric Von Daniken said in one of his books what if big bang is actualy giant compjuter.
And then I have started thinking what if transcedental realm of God is a giant advanced supercompjuter.
And this one here is a true jem.
What if long promised Akashic Records we will have access to it thrue An Internet connection?! Imagine that because isnt the internet accumulation of all the knowledge of the universe just like Akashic Library.
And with all this latly superfast development of science and tehnology I belive we will evolve very quickly and go places you know.
